The Dreaded Slowdown

[user24788]
This heads-up match has slowed down a bit. The American has a lead over the Swede but it appears that the two are playing small ball, despite Michael Martin's penchant for playing big pots.

Straight vs. Straight

[user25067]
Michael Martin raised to 210,000 and Michael Tureniec called from the big blind.

The flop came down {10-Hearts} {J-Diamonds} {Q-Spades} and both players checked. The turn was the {K-Diamonds}. Tureniec bet 220,000 and Martin called. The river fell the {6-Spades}. Tureniec checked and after a bit of a dwell, Martin checked behind.

Turns out it was a good play for Martin. He held a nine for the bottom end of the straight while Tureniec tabled {A-Diamonds} {3-Spades} for the nut straight. Tureniec won the pot.

Back Where We Began

[user25067]
Michael Martin limped in from the small blind and Michael Tureniec checked his option from the big blind.

The flop was {Q-Clubs} {7-Clubs} {4-Spades}. Tureniec check-called Martin's 120,000 bet. The turn was the {2-Hearts}. Tureniec checked again, Martin bet 300,000 and Tureniec called. The {9-Hearts} fell on the river. Tureniec checked a third time, Martin bet 600,000 and Tureniec called.

Martin showed {Q-?} {2-?} and Tureniec mucked.

The pot took our final two nearly back to where they started heads-up play, Martin with 4,360,000 and Tureniec with 1,645,000.

Race for the Glory

[user24788]
Sometimes heads-up battles can last for several hours. In today's event, both final table players found themselves all in very early into their heads-up match. It seemed so simple. A race between a big ace and a middle pocket pair. Michael Martin found himself on the good side of the race with pocket sevens but it was Michael Tureniec's turn to collect a little magic. He flopped trip aces...but still sweated out the hand. The way that Martin has been running you almost expected that a seven was going to spike on the river to seal the victory for the young American. As is, his fate fell a different way and he doubled up the Swede.
